20+ Years in the Making…

The History of Exacta Technologies


The start of Exacta Technologies, 2001

Exacta Technologies was founded in 2001 by our CEO Nick Rogers, with a vision to become world-leading hardware tailors. We started at Bristol self-storage, then on to a farm at Swallows Lodge in June 2001. Then in 2006, we moved into The Sawmill at Ubley. The company operated from Ubley for 14 years. We have always focused on creating products that were tailored to exact customer requirements. Exacta Technologies grew not by selling to thousands of customers, but by working in real partnerships with a select group of clients who remained with us for years.

Launching Blackcore Technologies

Blackcore by Exacta was founded in 2015 by CEO Nick Rogers. At the time we were working with one of the worlds’ leading financial companies, who approached us to see if we could build them an overclocked server. We sold the first GENERATION 1 system in December 2015. As new technology emerged, we continually evolved the Blackcore systems to make sure that both our performance and our reliability stayed ahead of the market. We launched GENERATION 2 in 2019, that range has excelled and currently sits in over 28 colocation data centres worldwide. Now we are working on our third generation of Blackcore overclocked servers, a range that will change the industry forever.

Launching a new brand was new and exciting for Exacta Technologies. It felt like a new beginning, as we entered the world of financial trading.


Our New HQ

In March 2020 we moved from our old premises in the picturesque Chew Valley and relocated to a brand-new purpose-built 20,000 sq. ft state of the art production facility in Emersons Green Bristol, UK. It was slightly melancholic to leave our old home behind, but the new building has not only massively expanded our capacity and capabilities but also invigorated our ever-growing team. This has allowed Exacta Technologies to grow into a group of world-class brands.

Our new production facility is a testament to our hard work and prepares us for our next phase of growth.


Launching Proline by Exacta

In 2020, we created high-performance workstation computers, custom-built to handle the most complex workloads, whilst still being sleek and quiet. We have utilised our years of expertise and knowledge of proven processes to build innovative, state of the art workstations built to deliver astounding power to the desk. Allowing professionals to design, create, edit, and render seamlessly with Proline.

‘We pride ourselves on our ability to transform the way professionals work with our high quality, hand-assembled technology.


Rebranding Platform by Exacta

Platform is where Exacta began over 20 years ago, we began as manufacturers of fully customised branded appliances and white-box servers built for software companies. This has always been the largest part of our company, yet we have never created a website or advertised it. Over the last year, we have met with new clients and decided now is the time to create somewhere purpose-built for our Platform customers. In 2021 we launched a new dedicated Platform by Exacta website; the site showcases our full end to end service and our client’s success stories.

This business grew by delivering bespoke solutions to a handful of great software companies.


The Exacta Technologies Group

Over the last six years, the Exacta Technologies Group has grown rapidly. We now have three sections of the group, Platform by Exacta, Blackcore by Exacta & Proline by Exacta. As we continue to grow, we continue to be proud of our work ethic and appreciative of our dedicated team. We are honoured to have several long-serving members in our company. Interestingly, many of our management team started their careers with us almost 20 years ago, working in manufacturing. Their knowledge of the business as well as their exceptional skills and experiences have shaped the values we have as a company, where everyone is given the opportunity to excel.

Launching Blackcore's GENERATION 3 Range

Since launching Blackcore Technologies in 2015 we have been in a constant cycle of innovation, to ensure we are extracting the best performance for our clients. On the twenty-third of June, we launched Blackcore's GENERATION 3 range of overclocked servers in New York City's Financial District. From day 1 of engineering GENERATION 3, we knew that this launch had to be big. Launching in New York was a dream, that very quickly became a reality. We are so proud of how far Blackcore has come in the last 7 years, and we are very excited for the future of Blackcore Technologies.

Launching in the US, in the financial capital of the world was incredible.


Two Years of Proline by Exacta

Two years ago, we launched Proline by Exacta, since then we have showcased our systems at three events in London, created partnerships with resellers across the UK, and deployed hundreds of systems into postproduction houses. We look forward to the next two years and are excited for the future of Proline.
